My knitting bag was an eye sore. It was the lining from an old beach bag, and I’m guessing I’ve used it as much as I have because it had a zippered top. I used it so much that there were countless holes through the nylon fabric where errant knitting needles had poked their curious heads. It was getting ratty and as all the cobbler’s children run bare, I thought it was time to sew myself something.

This is my first log cabin square, and I love the fabric choices. From the saguaro in the middle to the bicycles along the edge — all trimmed in my favorite color, also of the desert: turquoise. I found that turquoise corduroy and the denim I used for the lining at Goodwill.

Next, I’m sewing a matching denim zippered pouch to go inside for notions. It is a nice update and as much as I’ve been knitting, something that will be much loved.

I foresee many happy knitting trails to come!
